The RC baby thread

OK, it had to happen ... Post your baby tips here

So, Viki's umbilical cord fell off yesterday and she can bathe normally.

So how many times a week did you guys bathe the little ones the first month or so? Daily? 2-3 times a week?

We've been doing daily for the last 4 days ... what's the general consensus on this?

Bathe her every three or four days lurch as to not dry out her skin.

her skin seems fine, we rub her down with baby lotion after. its more about do they need the bath every day when they are so young? she does seem to enjoy it

As long as you keep her diaper area clean she shouldn't need one daily, unless she enjoys it of course.

Right on the money and I didn't even read this part:


"If Emily loves her bath, feel free to make it part of your daily routine. If she doesn't love it, it isn't necessary to bathe her daily. As long as you are changing her diaper regularly and cleaning her diaper area after poops (I don't recommend using prepared wipes that contain alcohol, soap, or perfumes), and spot cleaning after spit-ups, she shouldn't need to be bathed more often than every three or four days. Longer is okay for some babies -- if she starts to smell you will know it's time for a bath! If your baby's skin is drying out too much you will want to cut back on the frequency of baths and apply an alcohol-free, unscented baby lotion daily -- and especially after each bath. After Emily's umbilical stump falls off and her belly button is dry, you will be ready to give her a tub bath. By that time you will feel like a pro, and you will be able to adapt the ideas I've already outlined to the tub. There are, however, a few additional things that I should point out:"

I didn't read any of the stuff posted above so, if this is a repeat, sorry.

There is no need to bathe an infant daily. When they are not being held or in a carseat or bouncy chair (or whatever), they are generally laying in their crib or on a blanket. Aside from bodily fluids they aren't very prone to getting dirty. Our doctor did tell us once, however, that some infants can have adverse reactions to pet dander (if you have pets) and might need to be bathed a little more.

Both of my boys really enjoyed being bathed so we generally gave them one every other day or so. Of course the upside to all of this is that there really isn't anything better than the smell of a freshly-bathed infant.

Long story short, it's a preference thing. As long as you are careful not to let the skin dry out, you're ok.

Good God.


That picture is hilarious for a number of reasons.


Eric's comments in May were pretty funny

Cute hitlerjugend


Trying to decide the weekend's wine


Watching rock band play live music




EDIT: In Sweden, the Government sets up parent dates so you can talk to others in your situation before and after birth (kids born within a month or so of eachother living nearby) that you can (and most likely will) participate in. If you don't want to do that, you can always ask me as I'm a very sympathetic guy and know all there is to know.

heh! Good pics!
The child is well, thanks for asking. She yells all the time. Not out of irritation...just to hear herself. She is quite loud. Her brother went through the same phase. She is petite. Nine months and not quite 20 pounds. Her head is in the 97th percentile though. haha
